(video essay) Utopias, Spirituality and Consumption

This is part two of my previous video essay on spirituality. In this video, I discuss theories about the reality of the digital. Does the Internet provide a space for free exploration? How does consumption change the spiritual? Is spirituality even important on the Internet? Please enjoy!

What do you think? Please let me know in the comments!
